Africa For Christ
       Update

 
Dear Friends of Africa For Christ

Our focus for this Feb update will be our Adopt a Village program - a strategy to reach people for Jesus through a three-fold focus on Discipleship, Community Development and Orphan and Vulnerable Care. At our recent Module 2 training, we were greatly encouraged by the report backs from our students. As those who have graduated in previous years also send their feedback, there is much to rejoice about! Communities are truly being transformed - your will be done Lord- your Kingdom come! 
                                        Our Adopt A Village Students 2021

Eighteen students recently gathered together to complete their Module 2 Training. These students are from three different organizations that partner together to see Kingdom transformation take place in our communities. What a joy is was to have fellowship with them and to see their persevering faith under very challenging ministry circumstances.
                                     Francis' efforts to find a school ...

Last month Jeremy shared a testimony about Francis. At our recent training, during the report back time,  Francis shared how he had met these 2 children and after befriending them discovered they had never been to school! He is now in the process of working with the education department to find a school for the 2 boys. What a beautiful story - a foreigner with compassion for 2 children from a different culture to his, and yet going the extra mile to make a difference!
                                     Loyiso's Church ...

In the last newsletter we mentioned the incredible opportunity Pastor Loyiso had, through our generous donors Cypress Bible Church and Kittiwake Baptist in the USA, to be able to build a church. Here you see the project nearing completion - two containers were used and a roof structure built on top of them. It has created great interest in the community and Pastor Loyiso is of the opinion, that once Covid regulations ease, he might have to hold 2 services on a Sunday to accommodate the community!
Praise God for:
- Our Adopt a Village students - for their commitment and enthusiasm
- The 2 Church buildings of Victor and Loyiso that are making good progress
- Our faithful partners that make this all possible

Please pray for:
- Francis - that he would find favour with the education department to find a school

- Our Adopt a Village Kingdom Catalysts that minister in challenging conditions
- Protection from Covid and good health for all our Church Planters

With much appreciation for your faithful partnership ... 


Blessed to be a Blessing
